MotoGP™ World Championship leader Valentino Rossi identifies where he wants to improve ahead of the Gran Premi Monster Energy de Catalunya.
After being serenaded by home fans for his third place podium finish in Mugello, Rossi is excited to head to the next round in Montmelo. The Doctor holds a record of six premier victories with wins in 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2009, and is one of only two riders who have won the race in Catalunya from pole position.
Valentino Rossi: “I think the Catalunya GP will be another good race, it seems that all races are great this year. The three main manufacturers are more or less at the same level and at every race you can expect everything. I love Barcelona; this is one of my favourite tracks. It is always difficult to go fast at that track but last year I rode one of my best races and this year I'm in good shape. We have to improve a few little things. We have to be better at finding the right set up for the bike and we have to be faster so we can start the race from a better position. The YZR-M1 is going really well; we are first and second in the championship and the last few races of Jorge proved the bikes' competitiveness. We are close and we will work strongly to make it a nice weekend in Barcelona.”
